Mother’s Day brunch, there is no better way to get spoiled than a midday meal with all your favourites. Don your best pyjamas and soak up the syrup, and wines, with these memorable matches. Savoury or sweet, there’s a wine that will shine with your menu. Celebrate being a mom, or your own mom by crafting a creative yet simple offering.

Waffles and wines, we can’t think of a better combination! Paired with VQA wines from Ontario, waffles go equally well with both spicy and dessert-style plates. Customize your brunch with a DIY waffle bar with all the fixings, and be sure to keep wines on ice!

VQA WINES FROM ONTARIO- YOURS TO EXPLORE THIS MOTHER’S DAY

A classic and crisp rosé is effortless and approachable, and this new release is beautiful, bright and crisp. The Offshore Hang Ten Rosé VQA boasts a light and bouncy effort blended with chardonnay, pinot grigio, riesling and zweigelt. Hailing from the Niagara Peninsula, this charming wine is priced well at $17.95. Pinot notes balance here against the weight of the waffles, it’s a delightful pairing that’s refreshing and stands up to the chilli spice of the Nashville-style chicken.

SOME LIKE IT HOT, OR NOT…WE HAVE A WINE FOR THAT

Partnering with your sweet-style dessert waffle is a personal preference, and while rosé is easy-going enough to go with either, whites like this pear-driven and fruit-forward effort are flirting with apple notes and a dry finish. It’s deceivingly complex, just like mom. The hue and tone offer a sweet allure to Grow Wild Enchanting White wine which makes it a perfect companion to fresh fruit. And at $15.95 for both the Grow Wild Enhanting White and Grow Wild Ravishing Rosé you can make a splash with both, one to gift, and one to enjoy together.

WAFFLES AND VQA WINES DRESS TO IMPRESS

Fortunately, setting up a waffle bar is a snap. You can even make waffles ahead of time and keep them warm in the oven. Whipped cream and fresh fruit are usual suspects, but elevate the spread with smoked salmon, runny eggs benedict or smashed avocado. All would be brilliant dance partners for these wonderful wines. While everyone runs around getting everything ready, sip and reflect on these VQA Wines, all now available at your local LCBO and happy Mother’s Day all!
